Last night a high school friend of my son's passed away. He overdosed. He had struggled with addiction since his 1st year of college. A bright young man with so much potential. He went to Princeton on a baseball scholarship. Pitcher. Injured his shoulder first season and could no longer play. Princeton let him stay however. That was when he started self medicating. He did two stints in rehab. We all thought he was doing so much better. He graduated and was looking at career options. He died in his mother's home, his (live-in) girlfriend and brother found him. This is just so devastating. My heart is breaking for his family, my son, and his other friends. We know it was an opiate, but not much more. So, everyone with kids - give them an extra hug today (and every day). Let them know how valuable they are, no matter what. And say a little prayer for this boy's family, that they find peace.
